Federal Judge Rules GrubHub Driver Is Independent Contractor: An Interview with Carlos BecerraEmployment Law This Week® February 19, 2018
Employment Law This Week® (Episode 105: Week of February 19, 2018) has released bonus footage of its interview with Carlos Becerra, a Senior Attorney at Epstein Becker Green.
Mr. Becerra discusses a first-of-its-kind ruling on the gig economy, in which a California federal judge ruled that a former GrubHub delivery driver was an independent contractor, not an employee. The judge found that the company did not have the required control over its drivers for the plaintiff to establish that he is an employee. This decision comes as companies like Uber and Lyft are also facing lawsuits that accuse them of misclassifying employees as independent contractors.
